I am really enjoying Caleb's Crossing, by Geraldine Brooks. And I loved Just Kids, by Patti Smith about her friendship with Robert Mapplethorpe. I never related much to the art or the music that was their world. But, oh, the book is something.


happy to hear you too loved Olive Kitteridge.....Diane Rehm (NPR) had this as one of her book club selections...and had so little sympathy for Olive K that it changed by view of Rehm....


At Cliff's prompting, I am reading books I missed along the way. I am currently reading The French Lieutenant's Woman by John Fowles and loving it.

I am also reading Souviens-Toi by Mary Higgens Clark.

Yes, I know... Mark Higgens Clark?! This is not a recommendation. The text is in French and I happened upon it in a thrift store. It's good practice for me.


I loved Wolf Hall a lot. Also The 1000 Autumns of Jacob de Zoet. Also, a somewhat older book, A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth.
